Nightmare Before Christmas Holiday Event at Houdini Estate

We just got some photos back from our recent event at The Houdini Estate in Los Angeles, CA. This beautiful and historical event venue was a perfect backdrop for our client’s Nightmare Before Christmas-themed Holiday Party. Check out some highlights:

The Venue:
We love when the vibe of a venue lends itself so perfectly to a theme. The Houdini Estate, located in the Hollywood Hills, is a gorgeous castle-like property, where the world’s most celebrated magician once practiced his famous escapes.
Our client, Rocketfuel, incorporated branding into both decor and theme, utilizing a pool gobo, as well as clever “Nightmare BeFuel Christmas” signage. Well-played, client!

Jack Skellington accents, black & white linens, and spooky dripping candles helped set a Tim Burton-esque stage.

A big goal during any corporate event is keeping guests engaged at all times. This party included a food truck (pictured above), a molecular mixologist, and a interactive cotton candy bar. Our favorite illusionist Rodney Reyes also roamed through the crowd performing close-up magic for guests, but he “disappeared” before we could snap a shot!
